Welcome to UAB's Student Nurses' Association


The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Nursing Student Nurses' Association (UABSON SNA) is a local chapter of the National Student Nurses' Association, providing information and community interaction for nursing students and faculty of UAB.

Mission Statement: To mentor nursing students preparing for initial licensure as registered nurses and to convey the standards, ethics, and skills that students will need as responsible and accountable leaders and members of the profession.


Why Should I Join SNA?

There are many benefits of being a member of the Student Nurses' Association. Be a part of SNA and obtain leadership qualities, communication skills, and networking opportunities. Members benefit from leadership opportunities, exam preparation courses, scholarships, career information, publication discounts, legislation representation, and a quarterly association newsletter from the National Student Nurses' Association. We strive to provide the information, resources, and opportunities needed to empower nursing and pre-nursing students as future professionals.

What Does SNA Do?

The Student Nurses' Association works diligently to make a difference in our school and community. Each year, we sponsor and facilitate projects on the UAB campus, within our community, and internationally. Our efforts allow us to be of service to others, as well as make a difference in the lives of others. Additionally, SNA helps with many School of Nursing events, including Homecoming each year. We also reach out to students who are thinking of attending the School of Nursing, or who have just been accepted into the School of Nursing program. SNA Representatives attend orientations and seminars throughout the school year to answer any questions student may have about nursing school and SNA.

SNA General Meetings

Each semester, SNA hosts a general meeting for pre-nursing and nursing students. At our meetings, the SNA brings in a variety of individuals that students can benefit from. During a typical SNA meeting, we recruit different nursing professionals (Nurse Practitioners, Critical Care Nurses, Nurse Anesthetists, etc.) to speak about their profession. All pre-nursing and nursing students will receive an invitation to SNA General Meetings via email from Mrs. Stephanie Hamberger or another SNA Board Member. They are also posted via our social media pages (Facebook and Twitter). Please look out for our emails and let us know if you are not receiving them and wish to!
